(Reuters) - British online fashion retailer Boohoo said on Friday it had taken a long-term lease for a new warehouse in the English town of Daventry, as the group looks to expand and add capacity to its existing facilities.
The warehouse is expected to become operational in the second quarter and the company expects to invest over 50 million pounds ($68.54 million) in the facility.
